Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

 

The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini pairs a recognisable design with middling specs.

Android 4.1 with Samsung TouchWiz UI, Familiar, stylish design, Strong in-ear headphones

Poor 4-inch display, Disappointing 5-megapixel camera, Expensive for specs on offer

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

 

A highly capable handset, but one that is outclassed by cheaper rivals

Slim profile ; Lightweight ; Android Jelly Bean out of the box ; MicroSD card support

Restrictive on-board storage ; High price tag ; Rivals now offering more for less

Unfortunately, all the things the S3 mini does well can’t hide the fact there are other phones at this price point and below that offer more.

Can the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini compete with our phone of year - the Galaxy S3?

Slim profile ; Samsung apps ; Jelly Bean as standard

Lack of storage ; Poor camera ; Expensive

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini review

 

A Samsung Galaxy smartphone at a price and screen size that won't stretch your bank balance (or fingers) too much? Yes please

A solid, shrunken down version of its bigger brother but we can't recommend the Mini over the cheaper and far superior Nexus 4

Samsung Galaxy S III Mini

 

With the top end of the market practically sewn up, Samsung is looking to push that success into the middle of the pack with the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini. It looks like the company's top phone, but the specs see it as more of a replacement for the...

Great build and nice design, plenty of tweaking to offer a wide range of functionality, microSD card slot, good battery life

Feels unexpectedly sluggish, looks overpriced

There's a lot to like about the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini. The range of tweaks that Samsung has layered in is impressive, it looks good and it's a flexible phone with the option to expand the memory and swap the battery if you need to.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini review

 

Is smaller always more beautiful?

Scaled down design ; Android Jelly Bean ; MicroSD support ; Bright Screen

Expensive ; Dual core ; Low Screen resolution ; Samsung Apps

The S3 Mini ticks all the right boxes, and comes in at a very decent price. The truth of the matter is, though, that it's launching right smack bang against the Google phone, the Nexus 4. Would we recommend buying it over the Nexus? Not really.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini a killer bargain for a buck

 

Who cares about your fast-food joint's dollar menu!? The same bill can get you a more than decent Android smartphone.

The ; delivers Android 4.2, 4G LTE, NFC, and a solid 5-megapixel camera for just $1 on contract.

Mediocre call quality and internal speed hiccups are two trade-offs for the price; you'll especially notice shutter lag.

First-time smartphone buyers get a lot for a little with Samsung's year-old Galaxy S3 Mini, but keep in mind that this is no high-end performer.

Samsung Galaxy S3 mini vs Galaxy S4 mini review

 

How does the Galaxy S4 mini compare to its predecessor, the Galaxy S3 mini? We take a look in our in-depth Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Galaxy S4 mini comparison review.

The Galaxy S4 mini is clearly a better phone in a number of areas compared to the Galaxy S3 mini. Unsurprising really consider it's the newer model. Pending on the price, it's the one to go for out of these two Samsung smartphones.
